Vandalism at Cherry Creek Falls Park

Two donated benches vandalized at new park in Meadowbrook

One of the vandalized benches at Cherry Creek Park.

It’s a story that plays out far too many times — a community works to build an amenity and it’s vandalized for no apparent reason.

Such is the case at Cherry Creek Falls Park where two stone benches, donated by the Hammond family, have been vandalized.

Meadowbrook Community Association President Bob Johnstone says that most visitors to the park treat it respectfully, but some time in September unknown persons stole the seat from one bench and left the seat from the other on the ground.

This is discouraging for the family who donated the benches and all those who worked so hard to bring the park to its current status, Johnstone says.

He hopes the perpetrators are identified and brought to justice. If you have any information you think may be helpful, please constact the Kimberley RCMP at 250-427-4811 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
